It’s been another fun year for us creating lots of different types of jewellery for lots of different occasions. We always enjoy being a small part of our customers’ special occasions, whether it be a birthday or celebration of any sort. This year has seen lots of custom work for us in a wider variety of jewellery types than before. We have been working with our customers to create personalised items such as photo memory lockets as well as handmaking beaded jewellery from photographs.
It has been such a pleasure getting to know our customers more during the process and finding out more about the occasion in question. As a few examples, we helped one customer to create a memory locket for a family member’s 40th birthday with a photograph engraved onto a rose gold memory locket backplate and helped them to choose suitable memory locket charms for the recipient as well as the memory locket itself. This made a truly memorable and heartfelt gift that will be treasured.
Creating our first men’s jewellery was really nice for us. We were asked to create a school graduation present for a 13 year old which could be personalised and straight away thought of the men’s leather bracelet one of our stockists offered. This is grown-up sort of gift with an inspiring message suitable for a young man. Our customer even sent pictures of his impressed look upon receiving his gift! This absolutely made our year to see this and it was so lovely of our customer to send it.
We have also worked with customers to place paw prints of their fury family members onto special heart pendants. Being animal lovers here at The Cove, this was possibly the most fun of all, especially when the little fur babies in question weren’t happy about their paw prints going onto our special inkless wipe kit paper! Customers had to get creative sometimes to get images of the little paws but we always get there in the end!
It has been wonderful to get creative but also to work with ideas from customers and bring them to life. Thank you to our customers for these opportunities and the fun we have had!
